Elle Varner releases debut album on August 7th (MBK/RCA Records) - tracklist

Elle Varner

Singer-songwriter-musician Elle Varner is set to strike the perfect chord with the long awaited release of her debut album, Perfectly Imperfect, on August 7th, 2012 (MBK/RCA Records).

The album is currently available for pre-orders on iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers.

Elle first sparked attention with the release of her infectious lead single "Only Wanna Give It To You" featuring Grammy Award nominee J. Cole. The accompanying vibrant video hit #1 on BET's 106 & Park, accumulated over 3 million views online, and instantly earned Elle "Artist to Watch in 2012" claims by Teen Vogue and PopCrush among others. Recognizing her talents from the onset, Elle was featured in the heavily sought after MTV Buzzworthy, BET's Music Matters and Centric's Centric Selects campaigns.

Elle's undercurrent single, the inspiring "So Fly," was honored with a "Body Peace" award from Seventeen magazine as it became an anthem for teen girls dealing with self-esteem and image issues.

Accolades continued to increase for the 23 year-old as her latest hit single "Refill" kicked off as the #1 most added single at urban mainstream radio and reached Top 10 status.

"Refill successfully positions Varner as the latest fresh face in mainstream R&B and displays her talents in Technicolor" says Billboard.

The soulful singer recently displayed her talents when she took the 2012 BET Awards by storm with a magnetic performance of "Refill" during the 106 & Park Pre-Show.

The next single from the album is the melodic "I Don't Care," set to impact urban mainstream radio on July 23rd.

Essence believes Elle "has the right ingredients (talent, charisma and a team that managed Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys) to deliver an instant-classic debut." And rightfully so. As a graduate of the Clive Davis Program of Recorded Music at New York University and the daughter of a songwriter-producer couple, Varner's Perfectly Imperfect boasts songs written solely by the young songstress and production from Pop & Oak, responsible for hits from Nicki Minaj, Big Sean & Trey Songz, amongst others.

Elle's unparalleled sound is a combination of R&B funk and meticulous rhythm with an added quirkiness as showcased throughout Perfectly Imperfect.
